Working together to open doors for individuals with intellectual, developmental and cognitive disabilities to be valued members of the community.

Since 1957, ARCA has provided opportunities for individuals with intellectual, developmental and cognitive disabilities to enjoy great lives. ARCA’s comprehensive, lifelong, community-based services are funded through various resources including Medicaid Waiver, ICF-IDD, Mi-Via, State General Fund, DVR, foundations, corporations and private donors. Services can also be customized and purchased directly by an individual or loved one.

ARCA’s trained health professionals, nutritionists, therapists, social workers, program managers, case workers and exemplary direct support professionals serve over 600 individuals of all ages; including fragile babies and senior citizens.

It’s all in the A

ARCA’s “A” captures the culture of our 650 member workforce. It provides a portrait of the vibrant organization we are each honored to serve.

Every day, our quest is to be the role model of excellence in lifelong services for individuals with intellectual, developmental and cognitive disabilities. Our journey began in 1957 and will continue as long as the need exists.

Throughout this ongoing journey of inspiration, challenge, personal growth, sadness and joy, we strive to live by our ARCA “A.” We invite you to join us!
